WAT (WebApplicationTab)

light but too lean. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Some features I like, but...
1) is not compatible with thunderbrowse, even if thunderbrowse is explicitly triggered to open up a thunderbrowse tab... it no longer can. Further, upon removing WAT, I had to remove and reinstall Thunderbrowse to get it working again.
2) Could very much use an optional forward and back button... (if it were compatible with thunderbrowse, maybe it could use tBrowse's buttons?)
3) WAT should NOT default to opening every left-clicked link in a new tab in my opinion.
4) As others have mentioned... wish it had the ability to make some website tabs auto-load with TBird (such as gcal for those who don't use Lightning).

ThunderBrowse

Working version 3.82 + Suggestions Rated 4 out of 5 stars

tb 16.0 FIX = Download Thunderbrowse v3.82 by scrolling to bottom of page, expanding version-info, and then clicking "see all versions".

2 suggestions for the developer:
1) Enable option to open a new thunderBIRD tab... that has no message content, only thunderbrowse content. Currently, if you have multiple thunderbrowse tabs open, you CAN'T close the original message-tab.
2) Utilize the above method to have thunderBIRD tab A) open with 5 thunderBROWSE google tabs or such, then open a completely new thunderBIRD tab B) that has maybe 5 thunderBROWSE yahoo tabs open. This is just one suggestion to deal with a lack of multi-row tabbar and tab-groups... both of which expand tab-space in their own way.

As to suggestion #1... it is true that if you select "left-click opens in current tab" under options, you can use this feature in conjunction with Thunderbirds "open messsage in new tab" feature to simulate this the idea of having a ThunderBIRD tab open with no message-content. But you can see that the tab-title remains, and when clicking on another Tbird tab and then back on the "trick" tab, it will auto-reload the message content. So I feel that a fix or modification for this suggestion shouldn't be too hard to implement as it can already be approximated. Thanks developer.

ThunderBrowse

Only partially working on TB v16 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Thunderbrowse will open some links via left- or middle-click, but other links it simply seems to not detect that they are in-fact links. However, if you press the "new thunderbrowse tab" button, you will see a new thunderbrowse tab with a url-bar. From there you can copy and paste a link that wasn't earlier working in TB... into the url bar, and now that link will show in thunderbrowse. So the problem seems to simply be with link detection.
